The report also describes engineering, economic, social, and environmental analyses conducted to date; it does not identify a preferred alternative nor does it make any recommendations or decisions. The Interim Report identifies three main problems in the study area— upstream risks to life safety and property when inflows exceed reservoir capacity, dam safety risks if a dam component were to fail during a flood, and downstream risks to life safety and property when flows exceed channel capacity. To address each of these concerns, a number of structural and non-structural measures were considered including but not limited to: Bypass channels, new reservoirs, detention ponds, tunnels, dredging of existing detention ponds and reservoirs, spillway modifications, levees/ floodwalls, channel modifications, property acquisition, changes in operations, structure modifications, and prairie/wetland restoration. The Study Team screened an initial array of measures based on technical feasibility, performance, cost, and benefits. Eight alternatives are identified in the interim report as the focused array. These include: • No Action. No Federal action is taken to reduce future flood risks. This alternative serves as the baseline condition to compare the action alternatives’ benefits and costs and is required by policy. • FRM Alternative 2: Cypress Creek Reservoir. This alternative investigates the feasibility of increasing storage capacity in the upper watersheds through construction of a third reservoir in the vicinity of the Harris-Waller County line in the far western part of the study area. • FRM Alternative 6: Buffalo Bayou Channel Improvements. This alternative facilitates more efficient conveyance of water by widening and deepening Buffalo Bayou, while preserving or enhancing the natural characteristics of the aquatic and riparian ecosystem. • FRM Alternative 7: Non-Structural Only. This alternative utilizes actions that reduce human exposure and vulnerability to flooding, but does not attempt to change the hazard. Property acquisition along Buffalo Bayou would lower the risk to lives and properties downstream during all precipitation events, while also allowing for nondamaging larger releases from the reservoirs during more severe events. VerDate Sep<11>2014 19:38 Oct 01, 2020 Jkt 253001 • FRM Alternative 8: Combination Plan. This alternative utilizes a combination of FRM Alternative 2 and 6, which includes construction of a third reservoir and channel improvements to Buffalo Bayou. • Dam Safety (DS) Alternative 4: Tolerable Risk. This alternative increases the spillway capacity and prevents overtopping by reinforcing all four spillways of Addicks and Barker dams. The north spillways would be removed and replaced with stepped roller compacted concrete (RCC) and the south spillways would be replaced with articulated concrete block. • DS Alternative 5: Tolerable Risk + As Low as Reasonably Practicable. This alternative is similar to DS Alternative 4, except that all four spillways would be removed and replaced with stepped RCC. • System Operations. This alternative involves acquiring additional lands to efficiently and safely operate the reservoirs given the changed circumstances. A range of reservoir elevations are being considered and could extend from current Federallyowned government land to elevation 112 at Addicks Reservoir and elevation 105 at Barker Reservoir. This would involve acquisition of between 14,868 and 24,707 tracts of land and involve relocation of 10,606 to 21,302 residential properties and 259 to 492 commercial properties. 3. Public Participation. USACE and HCFCD are committed to proactively informing and engaging with the community and stakeholders to reach effective and implementable flood risk management solutions. These agencies intend for public review of the Interim Report to provide input on the alternatives and the complexity of developing solutions. Public and resource agency feedback on the Interim Report will inform the next level of evaluation to identify a Tentatively Selected Plan (TSP). The TSP may be a single alternative or comprised of several alternatives from the focused array under consideration. Solicitation of Comments: The USACE is soliciting comments on the Interim Report from the public, Federal, State, and local agencies, elected officials, Tribal Nations, and other interested parties. The public comment period will begin [DATE OF PUBLICATION] and written comments may be submitted by email or through postal mail at the addresses provided above. Meetings: Due to the ‘‘Proclamation on Declaring a National Emergency Concerning the Novel Coronavirus Disease (COVID–19) Outbreak’’ issued PO 00000 Frm 00012 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 62285 on March 13, 2020, no in-person meetings will be held. The USACE will host informational sharing sessions intended to provide an overview of the report and findings to date. The study website provides the dates and times of the information sessions, as well as upto-date access details. 4. Identification of Tentatively Selected Plan and Availability of Draft EIS. Depending on input received on the Interim Report, USACE estimates issuing a Draft Feasibility Report and Draft Environmental Impact Statement for public review and comment in early 2021. At that time, USACE will provide a 45-day public review period, in accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). USACE will notify all interested agencies, organizations, and individuals of the availability of the draft document at that time. Christopher G. Beck, Brigadier General, U.S. Army, Commanding.

    Abstract: Section 107 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 
(Rehabilitation Act), as amended by Title IV of the Workforce 
Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA), requires the Commissioner of the 
Rehabilitation Services Administration (RSA) to conduct annual reviews 
and periodic on-site monitoring of the vocational rehabilitation (VR) 
program to determine whether a state agency is complying substantially 
with the provisions of its State Plan under section 101 of the 
Rehabilitation Act and with the evaluation standards and performance 
indicators established under section 106 of the Rehabilitation Act 
subject to the performance accountability provisions described in 
Section 116(b) of WIOA. To fulfill its monitoring responsibility, RSA 
reviews a maximum of 15 VR agencies in each Federal fiscal year. In 
order to resolve findings of non-compliance, RSA requires that VR 
agencies develop a Corrective Action Plan (CAP). The CAP must contain 
the specific steps that the agency will take to resolve each finding, 
timelines for the completion of each step and methods for evaluating 
that the findings have been resolved. RSA requires the agency to report 
progress toward completion of the CAP on a quarterly basis.
